I Arise Today….

Welcoming another Year
to reconcile differences
to witness joy
to broaden my friendships;

Welcoming another Beginning 
to live with gratitude
to amend quarrels
to model God’s generosity;

Welcoming another Opportunity
to practice non-violence
to imitate Jesus’ mercy
to celebrate insights;

Welcoming another Invitation
to let go, to hang on
to listen attentively
to learn from nature;

Welcoming another Attempt 
to try something new
to consume less
to ask for help;

Welcoming another Decision
to be a peacemaker
to teach by example
to slow down
to preach with passion.
